"I found my balance between enjoying food and tolerating risk, and it included the occasional Wellfleet on the half-shell. It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the recommendations, and to live in fear of every bite of food you put into your mouth. But that makes for a very stressful, anxious, long nine (plus) months. And that certainly isn't good for the fetus."
"fine, but on what ground does she come up with "a few oysters are not as bad a nine months of stress" for the fetus."
how could she possibly know? she just makes up her justification .
> I found my balance between enjoying food and tolerating risk
This pretty much says it all, why did you bother paying attention after that? "But it's risky!" "Um. Duh. She said it was risky."
> she just makes up her justification
It's what humans are best at.
If she really wanted to make it safe for her unborn child, she would refrain from driving in an automobile, or crossing the street, or doing anything other than huddle in a reinforced concrete bunker.
Life is about some level of risk.
